Twice Shy + Foxsmith = Shy Fox

BuffaloMountainsSeana Seeto is a local freelance graphic designer who makes expressive, bold and colourful art. She describes herself as shy, but her creative collective Twice Shy and clothing/art store Shy Fox are anything but.

Seana founded Twice Shy with her uni friends Laura Packer and Nic Fornasier as a way to collaborate their different strengths in design, animation and film. With Twice Shy, Seana freelances for a bunch of Brisbane bands including Foxsmith, Mega Ogre and Little Buffalo.

Her clothing and art label Shy Fox started up earlier this year, and thus far sells handmade pocket tees, screen printed t-shirts, painted skate decks and prints. She began the store with Charlie from Foxsmith, and the name was a mash-up between their two projects. Shy Fox has a stall at the Young Designer’s Markets in Southbank on the first Sunday of each month.

FuFoxDeckSeana loves the process of turning pencil and paper into a digital illustration. She generally hand draws all of her work, scans it and goes “crazy in Photoshop with my beloved Wacom tablet.”

She’s had a passion for drawing since her childhood.

“One of my earliest memories is winning a Hungry Jack’s voucher for my crayon drawing of Simba from The Lion King – I think this is still a crowning achievement of my life!” Seana said.

Seana long harboured a desire to be an animator, but believing herself to be too impatient, she studied Communication Design at university. Doing so, she realised she wanted to merge her love for illustration with graphic design.

“So I did just that, and worked on developing my style to what it is now… a mix of weird characters, vibrant colours and textures.”

The cosy size of Brisbane’s creative scene has its challenges, but Seana is grateful for its tight-knit nature.

“I do like how there is always a probability of two-degrees of connection between everyone!”

And what are her plans for the future?

“Just working on expanding Shy Fox with some new designs and exciting new ideas, as well as keepin’ on with my band artwork. I’m also working on putting out a new zine of characters I’ve been creating lately. And I’m always on the lookout for new projects to have fun with!”

New Release from Dumbsaint

The Auteur

Dumbsaint are post rock masters from Sydney, Australia. Not only do they write attention grabbing instrumental numbers, each member (now only four of them) also contributes to shooting and editing short films to accompany their tracks and live performance. This brings greater weight to their musical creativity and allows the story of their songs to unravel with  ease.

To support their first release in over a year, ‘The Auteur’, Dumbsaint will be playing shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and the Gold Coast alongside post-metal quintet, HELM. The single will be available for download through Bird’s Robe Records on the 26th of August, along with an original short film and three audio remixes.

Here is something to get you started…
